The success of our safe house programs and services is largely dependent on support provided by caring volunteers. Our Direct Care ministry offers both long- and short-term opportunities for service in areas such as home maintenance, life skills, mentoring programs, educational opportunities, and Bible studies.
To ensure you are set up for success, your safety, and the safety of our residents; volunteering at the Safe House requires more in-depth training.
